little-known brooklyn bar band that features nine-time grammy winner norah jones. plus the culinary innovator with restaurants from honolulu and san francisco to chicago and orlando. chef roy yamaguchi joins us in "the dish." first, the new tensions overnight after last weekend's shooting of a black teenager in a st. louis suburb. >> this morning we know much more about the 18-year-old who died and the officer who shot him. the new developments stoked further anger in ferguson last night. police and about 200 protesters clashed again after a crowd broke into the convenience store that brown allegedly robbed the day he was killed. let's get the latest now from vladimir dutier in st. louis. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. as you say, things are calm today and order has been restored to the streets of ferguson after dozens of looters ransacked several stores in the area including the one where michael brown was allegedly stealing a box of cigars just a week ago. police in riot gear were on the scene, some with high-powered
5:04 am
rifles trained on the crowd. zpat the tense standoff there were no injuries and tear gas and rubber bullets were not used. all this anger comes after the release of the videotape which revealed more about the circumstances leading to the deadly incident. the videotape shows a man resembling michael brown at a convenience store committing a robbery. the man wearing a st. louis cardinals cap reaches over the counter and grabs a $48 box of cigars. in the video, the suspect shoves a store clerk as he leaves. according to police dispatch transcripts, the suspect's description was broadcast at 11:52. ten minutes later an officer spotted michael brown. and a minute later, brown lay dying in the streets just three blocks away from the store. >> every time they do something, they don't want to talk about it! but everything we do get exposed! >> reporter: the video released re-ignited the anger of some local residents. and brown's family criticized the tape's release. brown family attorney anthony gray. >> the family feels that that
5:05 am
was strategic. they think it was aimed at denigrating their son. it was a character assassination attempt. >> reporter: today police also released the name of the police officer who shot and killed brown. something protesters had demanded. he's darren wilson a four-year veteran of the ferguson police department with no record of disciplinary action. at his home in suburban st. louis county neighbor ron gorski described wilson as quiet and says they didn't know he was a police officer. >> i feel sorry for the family and for him and the situation as a whole across the country. >> reporter: after four days of violent protests the appointment of missouri state patrol captain ron johnson to head up security seemed to bring calm to ferguson. all day friday the 27-year state patrol veteran met with people on the streets where he grew up trying to calm and reassure residents angered by the shooting and the military-style reaction of local police. >> we're going to make a difference, but just like me and you are talking and you're
5:06 am
listening to me i'll tell you, we've got to start with me and we've got to start with you. so hey, you keep doing what you're doing we're going to be all right. we're going to continue to talk. if something's not right, i'm not going to tell you it's right. if something is wrong, i'm going to tell you it's wrong, okay? >> okay. >> all right. >> reporter: vinita much of the frustration in the community stems from the conflicting information given by ferguson's police chief. at a press conference yesterday, he said that officer wilson when he stopped michael brown, stopped him for walking in the middle of the street and that he was unaware that a robbery had taken place. later he told local reporters that wilson in fact did know that cigars had been taken and that's why he stopped brown. so a lot of conflicting information there. >> vladimir dutier thank you. what do these latest developments in ferguson mean? rick rikki klieman, good morning.
5:07 am
the officer was unaware of that video. how relevant is that and how will that play out? >> i think the video is relevant in a number of ways. number one is we really don't know if the officer was totally unaware of the robbery because we don't have the radio transmissions as to why the officer left where he was and came to that site. by one story, we do know that the officer, after he told these young men to move then comes back because he allegedly sees the significantcigarillos. let's assume he knew nothing. so then why would the tape be relevant? well, it's relevant because of what michael brown, this poor young man who is the victim of a tragedy, who is now dead what did michael brown know at the time that he was stopped by the police? that is if he were involved in a robbery, which certainly the family lawyers alleges that it looks like michael brown on the
5:08 am
tape, so does he have a mindset that he's being stopped for a robbery? the other and final reason it may be relevant is how does pmichael brown, if he is in that tape, act with the store clerk in terms of then how does he act with the police officer? >> how, in your estimation is the police chief handling this? >> well, i think that the police chief has made a number of mistakes simply because he's made factual errors. and when we're looking at factual errors if he says well, the officer didn't know something and then later says he did know something, it muddies the waters in this type of a case. >> what are they doing right now to figure out exactly what happened in the middle of that street? >> well, what happened exactly in the middle of that street since there was no lapel camera on this police officer or any other type of camera because those are things that are happening in progressive policing around the country, haven't yet reached missouri what we do know is we have witnesses. but far more important in this case is what is the forensic evidence in this case? that's what's going to prove the case one way or the other.
5:09 am
ballistics. what is the trajectory of bullets in this case? was there a bullet that went off in the car? was there a shot or more shots that went off in the street? we've got to learn about the ballistics. we have to also learn about finger prints or dna. we've heard one version of the police officer's story. heaven only knows what the final version is because ultimately in all of these cases, the first story from either side is not necessarily the end story. so was there a scuffle over the gun? is there a fingerprint of michael brown on the gun or somewhere in the car? we need forensic evidence. we have all, unfortunately, made a rush to judgment in this case. >> more answers would be good. ricki klieman, thank you very much. the events in ferguson will be a main topic tomorrow morning on "face the nation" right here on cbs. bob's guests will include missouri governor jay nixon and
5:10 am
cornell william brooks. now what may change the face of the 2016 election. a grand jury has indicted rick perry on two felony counts for abuse of power. the charges stem from perry allegedly trying to pressure the district attorney in austin to step down by promising to cut off state funding for her office. for more on the story, we turn to shawn sullivan political reporter with "the washington post," and he is in our washington bureau. shawn, good morning. >> this is obviously a huge story a lot of people are walking up to. he's the first governor in nearly a century to be indicted. how did this happen? >> well this has been something that has been sort of rolling forward for a while, but it really did catch texas political observers by surprise. you know this case wasn't new, but the fact that you know, governor perry was indicted as you said you do not see sitting governors get indicted very often. so this came as a huge surprise to most of the texas political establishment yesterday. >> shawn, what does this mean for 2016 right now? >> well it's certainly not good
5:11 am
news for governor perry. he's been trying to rehabilitate his image. he's been traveling the country. he's been talking about the state's economy. he's been going to iowa. he's been going to the early states, and he's trying to reboot after what really was a disastrous 2012 campaign. this is clearly a pretty big blow to that right now as he tries to rehab his image ahead of the potential 2016 presidential campaign. >> let's talk about punishment here, though. what could he be facing if he's found guilty? >> well he could be facing prison time. you know there's a lot up in the air right now. you know republicans i talked to in the state yesterday say, you know this is a political thing. they don't expect him to actually get convicted of anything. you know if he's not, that's certainly very very good news for him. you know any time anyone is indicted by a grand jury it's serious, and he does face potentially serious consequences for this. >> but shawn, in fairness to that point, this is political, right? at least part of it is. >> well i mean that's going to be at the center of this case is that, you know you have this
5:12 am
democratic district attorney that perry asked to step down. she didn't step down. he withheld funding from this unit. you know, you're talking about the travis county district attorney's office. it's one of the most liberal, if not the most liberal county in texas. and so certainly there's going to be political accusations lobbed from both sides. and perif perry can make it through okay, he might be able to survive because he can say there was a political thing, a witch hunt, and this is not something that is an assault on my character or my record as words, what do you think that analysts are going to think about his statement? >> well i think they're going to think that you know here is a guy who's reacting to a situation by immediately casting, you know under a political lens. like i said, republicans i talked to in the state yesterday say hey, look. governor perry used his
5:13 am
executive powers. that is not an offense that should be prosecuted. this is the same kind of thing that president obama does when he vetoes stuff. it's the same kind of thing president bush did. so they view this as a very different kind of thing. this is not some big scandal in their view. it's the president using the executive office to exercise his authority. >> shawn sullivan thank you so much for joining us this morning. appreciate it. a couple in new york state have been charged in the kidnapping of two amish girls. the suspects have been arraigned on charges that they intended to physically harm or sexually abuse the girls. steven howells and nicole vasy are being held without bond. the sisters are 7 and 12. they were be aducted from a roadside farm stand wednesday evening. they turned up safe thursday night 15 miles away. last night the sheriff said the girls provided crucial information that led to the arrests. >> the reason we were able to make arrests tonight is because just how strong they are and
5:14 am
things they are able to remember. let's remember that we've got a couple of victims here. >> the suspects are due back in court next week. both girls are said to be unharmed. in iraq this morning there is a battle in progress over a key dam in mosul, and kurdish officials in northern iraq report that fighters of isis have carried out a massacre killing dozens of ethnic yazidi civilians. and there are reports this morning of a significant offensive against isis forces in northern iraq supported by u.s. air strikes. charlie d'agata has more from erbil in northern iraq. >> reporter: kurdish peshmerga soldiers told us there is currently a battle under way to retake that dam from isis militants. they're taking on mortar fire and u.s. warplanes are conducting air strikes in the area. isis took this dam just more than a week ago. it is iraq's biggest, if it were destroyed or opened it could cause catastrophic flooding. meanwhile, u.s. military officials say that drones have been conducting air strikes in response to a reported massacre. kurdish officials say that as
5:15 am
many as 80 ethnic yazidi men were executed. they were told to convert to islam or die. peshmerga soldiers have gone on the attack in recent days trying to retake territory that was lost to isis but they tell us they're simply outgunned. they don't have the weapons to match the ones that isis stole from the iraqi military in terms of heavy equipment and heavy weapons. they're asking for more help from the united states and european allies. and they are heavily reliant on u.s. air power in terms of surveillance and air strikes. for "cbs this morning saturday," i'm charlie d'agata in erbil, northern iraq. now to the ongoing confrontation between ukraine and russia. a convoy of 240 russian trucks supposedly carrying r relief supplies for civilians in eastern ukraine r remains on the russian side of the bordeder this morning. british journalists photographed a different russian convoy crossing the border.
5:16 am
ukraine's president sasaid that column of trucks wasyed. the russian government denies its forces crossed into ukraine. nascar is introducing a new rule intended to prevent physical confrontations between drivers on the racetrack. as chip reid reports it comes to response to last weekend's tragedy on a dirt track in new york state. >> reporter: after crashing into a wall last weekend, kevin ward jr., in a video shot by a fan, was seen climbing out of his car and charging onto the track, dodging cars and pointing at tony stewart, a three-time nascar champion. moments later, stewart's car hit the 20-year-old ward. he was declared dead an hour later. the nascar rule orders drivers involved in accidents that don't involve fire to stay in their cars until told by track personnel to get out. robin pemberton is a top nascar official. >> this rule is really put in place for the safety of all of our competitors, and it's safety first right now. >> reporter: at pre-race meetings, nascar drivers are already routinely told to remain
5:17 am
in their cars after an accident. in spite of that it's not unusual for drivers to angrily approach moving cars. two years ago it was tony stewart who walked onto a track and threw his helmet at a car. in another incident he threw safety pads and appeared to reach for the driver. jeff burton will replace stewart in this weekend's nascar race in michigan. >> i'm proud that they want safety to be on the forefront. and that's what this rule is all about. >> reporter: but the rule has no specific penalties. nascar plans to enforce it only on a case-by-case basis. some drivers are skeptical including brad keselowski who said "i don't know how you can enforce a rule like that unless you had a robot on the track to grab the person and put them back in the car." the rule applies only to official nascar races which means it does not apply to the kind of minor league dirt track race where kevin ward jr. was killed although many of those tracks could choose to follow nascar's lead.
5:18 am
chip reid, cbs news, washington. >> he joins us this morning from the michigan international speedway in brooklyn michigan the site of this weekend's nascar 400. bob, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. >> is nascar doing this because they felt they had to do something, or is this something that actually does make a difference? >> i think they did it because they have to do something. this is obviously was a huge tragedy, and they had to respond to show leadership in the motor sports world. and probably from a legal standpoint as well. >> how do they actually punish this, though? >> they could fine a driver. they could dock a driver points. those are probably the two biggest penalties. they could suspend a driver but i would be very surprised if they actually did suspend a driver over something like this. unless it was like a multiple-time occurrence. >> so a lot of focus on where
5:19 am
you are right now, not just because of the race but also because tony stewart is not racing once again this weekend. when do you expect we'll see him back on the racetrack? >> i don't know. his camp says that he's grieving, and there's just no timetable for him to come back. and there's no real pressure i would say, from a competition standpoint for him to get back. he wasn't having a great season. he most likely wasn't going to make nascar's version of the playoffs called the chase for the sprint cup. so i think he'll take all the time he needs before he comes back because you've got to be mentally into the game to race these vehicles. >> how big of a setback is this for nascar? fans say they want to see the interaction. they want to see people get out of the cars. they sometimes want to see people get mad. does this put a negative light on the sport? >> well the clip you played by robin pemberton was in response to a question he was asked about
5:20 am
do they feel maybe they're cushing a little bit of the show, a little bit of the attraction of nascar? and nascar says that right now, you know they've got to look at the safety implications of a driver, you know approaching cars while they're still going around the track under caution. you know i think we'll see whether it impacts nascar's popularity, you know once we see what the penalties are for a driver who, you know eventually does get out of his car and wants to point a finger or wave a finger at another driver. it's going to happen. we just don't know whether it's going to be in the next month or the next year. >> bob with the new changes, thank you. it is time now to show you some of this morning's headlines. "the washington post" reports germany's foreign intelligence agency was listening in on calls made by secretary of state john kerry and his predecessor, hillary clinton. the revelations first appeared in the german news magazine. the report says the eavesdropping was an accident. the revelation comes after the national security agency monitored the cell phone calls
5:21 am
of german chancellor angela merkel. the reuters news agency says the afghan government is running short of money. while the country continues to receive millions of dollars in foreign aid, afghanistan says it's having a hard time paying salaries next month. it blames the unresolved presidential election for driving down revenue. afghanistan estimates its budget shortfall to be at least $500 million. "the los angeles times" says skateboarding pioneer jay adams has died. adams was depicted in "lords of dogtown" as a member of the tamed zephyr skate team. he's credited with influencing the hard-charging and surf-inspired moves of modern skateboarding. adams died while on a surf vacation in mexico. he was 53. ford is recalling 163,000 ford sts and escapes because of wire problems that could cause the vehicles to stall. the recall is for model years 2013 and 2014 and only those with two-liter engines. and "esquire" magazine reports that han solo is

5:27 am
different sites have different prices different deals with the holtz stels. in addition, there are certain sites that allow hidden prices or unpublished prices. >> what are these hidden rates and flash deals? >> well, in general, hotels want to fill most of their rooms with people playing the regular price. but if you're willing to do a little bit of extra work you can save a little or a lot of extra money. for example, getaroom.com has this very strange thing where if you call them they'll often give you a better price on the phone. i'd say 20% off a paris hotel room by picking up the phone, which seems very old-fashioned. >> what's the conversation? you call the hotel, get them on the line and what do you say? >> well that's a whole other process. once you've actually found the room you want, you go call the
5:28 am
hotel itself. and you say, hey, i'm looking at a room on hotels.com booking.com, whatever. do you have a discount you can give me directly? and it's in their interest to say sure because these hotels pay 20% to 30% commission to the sites that you're booking through. so really just calling them directly and saying hey, let's make a deal. let's cut out the middle man. and sometimes, not always they'll give you a break. >> okay. does this work -- i know labor day is coming up so this is really important about finding cheap hotel rooms. but someone like me who has children, we plan vacations, like, six or eight months in advance because we've got to take the time off. can you only get these cheap rates at the very last minute? >> not at all. there's a whole separate set of apps that will allow you to book stuff at the last minute and get an additional discount. usually they're on your phone, things like hotels tonight, something like that, and also some of the big sites also have separate apps that allow you to book tonight like booking.com has one called tonight. but all of these discounts, except for that one, are available far in advance as well.
5:29 am
5:30 am
i'm going to challenge bill gates. >> i'm glad to give to als. it's a great cause. but i want to accept this challenge. i want to do it better. >> all right. so here it is in response to facebook's mark zuckerberg bill gates built his own contraption to accept the als ice bucket challenge. it has raised more than $95 million to battle lou gehrig's disease so far. >> isn't this clever? gates went on to challenge elon musk of tesla motors ryan seacrest to take the challenge. then there it is. he dumped the ice-cold bucket of water right onto his head.
5:31 am
>> finely produced ice bucket challenge video ever made. >> now i'm curious, bill elon musk give us some sort of rocket with ice included combination? >> uping the ante aren't you? the federal government says a new database will go online next month allowing to you find out how much your doctor is being paid by drugmakers and medical device manufacturers. >> but there are already problems with the system that some compare to the disastrous rollout of healthcare.gov last year. mark albert in our washington bureau has more on this. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the problems have been so serious the centers for medicare and medicaid services cms, stopped physicians from previewing the database for nearly two weeks. until it was turned back on thursday. doctors now say they have a lack of faith that cms can get it right and warn patients may be hurt. the physician payment sunshine act was meant to shine a lot on the relationship pharmaceutical and device companies have with doctors. the act requires payments or gifts to physicians and teaching
5:32 am
hospitals be disclosed. but earlier this month, cms discovered problems with the open payments database. doctors with similar names may have had wrong payments assigned to them. and some doctors said they had problems registering to preview the information and a lack of time to correct it, if necessary. cms blames the companies and organizations that submitted the data. dr. robert waugh is president of the american medical association. >> we're very committed to transparency. we've supported the sunshine act, but we're also committed to accuracy. # >> reporter: the ama and more than 100 other associations want cms to delay the september 30th rollout for six months. do you not believe this database is ready for primetime? >> i don't. i really don't. i don't want my patients having the wrong impression because of inaccurate data that may be released on a database from the government. >> i think the database should go public right now. >> reporter: lina wen, an er doctor at george washington university who says she takes no payments from drug companies
5:33 am
calls any delay in publishing the information unacceptable. >> i have a lack of faith in doctors who do not want to be transparent with their patients. doctors need to become accountable to the people we serve. >> reporter: cms declined to go on camera but said in an e-mail quote, data accuracy is critical to the success of this transparency program and cms is committed to ensuring the integrity of data made available to the public. it is now giving doctors 11 extra days until september 8th to preview and correct their payments information but won't delay the public rollout three weeks later. our messages to cgi the database contractor which also handled healthcare.gov were not returned. vinita? >> mark albert thank you. now here's a look at the weather for your weekend.

5:37 am
it is time now for "morning rounds." joining us are cbs news contributor dr. holly phillips and dr. david agis. first up fans of robin williams are reacting to stunning new revelations. his widow says the oscar-winning actor and comedian in parkinson's disease when he took his own life. susan schneider revealed her husband's health issues in a statement. it reads "robin's sobriety was
5:38 am
intact and he was brave as heel heeled with depression anxiety as well as early stages of parkinson's. this raises more questions about his suicide. dr. david agis talk to us about this because i think people actually might think there is some sort of link between parkinson's and mental health. >> well there's clear association of parkinson's and depression. people with parkinson's disease have much higher rates of depression. there's also data showing people with depression years later had about a threefold increase in parkinson's disease. so we don't know if it was early parkinson's or one led to another. it's certainly an interesting correlation. they both have to do with nerves in the brain that make dopamine. the connection makes sense scientifically. >> would his family or inner circle have noticed the symptoms? can they be disguised? >> jeff it's interesting. early on in parkinson's disease, the symptoms can actually be very subtle. you might see very fine tremors or a little muscle rigidity.
5:39 am
there are medications that can really slow down the progression of the disease. so even after people have been diagnosed, they might go for several years, six, seven or even eight years without their friends and family members noticing their symptoms. >> turns out the ebola outbreak in west africa is actually worse than the numbers show. that's according to the world health organization. doctors without borders says the virus has killed more than 1,100 in four nations and sickened almost 2,000 others. that is more than half the number of reported ineffects. but workers on the ground say many cases go unreported. the united nations is working with affected countries to curb the spread right now. david, no approved treatments or cures for ebola, but this experimental drug z-map has been used in some cases. is it working? does it work? >> we have no idea. so it's been used in several patients. one patient got better. it is not clear whether it's from z-map or not. and it's an important point is that we have this virus that is bad and is killing about 70% of the people who get it.
5:40 am
and we don't have a treatment that we know works yet. there is data that just came out last week in a new discussion that statins actually block some of the inflammation in the body and may make people live longer or better with this disease like they did with swine flu. but these drugs like zmapp and others, first, there's no supply. second of all, we just don't know they work. >> holly, i think the primary concern is could it spread in the united states? we've heard about the two american missionary workers. is there a possibility there are more? >> you know vinita epidemiologists basically say we might see more cases coming into the united states like with these health care workers, people who work abroad don't realize they're sick and come back here, or they come here directly for treatment. but we're likely not to see -- very likely not to see any direct spread here. we're not going to end up with an outbreak in the way that we're seeing in west africa. on the other hand, you know it really is important to focus on containing the virus there.
5:41 am
the more cases that are there, the more we can see a spread both here and throughout the world. so it's really important that we see that containment as much as possible there. >> david, why this kind of outbreak now? >> you know this virus was first isolated in the '70s p. it came from a bat. there were small little villages. they would basically be decimated. well, over the last several years, many of these countries were urbanized. now there are these big cities. and so this hit a city. once it hits the city, it spreads like wildfire. there's another city that had a couple of cases called lagos that has 22 million people. so if it spreads in that city, we ain't seen nothing yet. and so this virus came around 20 or so outbreaks over the last 30 years, and there will be more whether from this virus or others. we have to get better at containing these things and identifying them early so we can actually make a difference. >> well in a major scientific achievement, researchers said
5:42 am
they have created tissue that acts a lot like the brain tissue of rats. cells are made on a scaffold and can be kept alive for two months. scientists hope to use this to learn how brain cells react to traumatic injury. this could lead to new treatments. there are new concerns about a chemical found in the products you might be using to wash your hands or brush your teeth. let's talk about this a little bit. david, what is this ingredient we're talking about, and what are the concerns right now? >> it's scary. it's called triclycen. it started when surgeons it was how they cleaned their hands. and then they slowly started to put it in things like soap the antibacterial soaps and in toothpastes to block bacteria in the mouth and block gingivitis. this data has been around for a long time which was never public that it can block development of mice in their tryhyroid and bones. it has an effect potentially in humans. so many companies have withdrawn
5:43 am
it from their products. yet there's still one toothpaste on the market that has it in, which is colgate total. and so we have to pay attention to these things because they're alternatives. if this were a drug where there was nothing else to use, then there's some merit. but here there are plenty of other things can you brush your teeth with. >> he mentioned colgate. we reached out to them. they said two decades of review have made us believe this product is safe. as a physician, would you recommend this to your patients? >> you know my position on sort of all of these things is unless there's a clear, clear benefit, why take a risk? you know as david just mentioned, there are hundreds of toothpastes on the store shelves that don't contain the triclocin. we also know there's a great amount of exposure we have to this chemical. there was a recent study done and 100% of the pregnant women that they studied had the chemical in their bloodstream, and about 50% of them actually had the chemical in the umbilical cord going to the baby. so if we can minimize our exposure while we're still
5:44 am
trying to understand what the, you know what the effects of the chemical are, i still think it's a good thing. just pick a different toothpaste. >> it would seem then, if you're talking about women who are pregnant who are transmitting, it's also a concern for younger children or is that the case? we need to be extra sensitive with them? >> you know i think always both pregnant women and children, we need to be extremely sensitive with all chemical -- all chemical exposures, and this is no exception. finally, new research presented at the meeting of the american chemical society shows that in the future working up a sweat by exercising may not only be good for your health but could also power your small electronic devices. researchers report they have designed a sensor in the form of a temporary tattoo that can both monitor a person's progress during exercise and produce power from all that perspiration. a good reason to sweat. >> yeah i think i need to get one of those so i can power up my cell phone. i'm always running out of battery. >> a tattoo that can monitor your workout. >> it's pretty cool. i mean this is the era of big data.

5:55 am
francisco by more than 8,000 nautical miles. construction on the canal was started by the french in 1881 but engineering setbacks and the deaths of 20,000 workers forced them to drop out. in 1902 president teddy roosevelt took over the project after negotiating a treaty with the new nation of panama. it established a ten-mile-wide strip of u.s.-controlled land known as the canal zone at the bargain price of $10 million. after 12 years of intense construction and the deaths of 6,000 more workers, the canal finally opened for business on august 15th, 1914. the steam ship "ss an con" became the first vessel to go through the manmade waterway. more than 1 million ships have passed through the canal carrying 8 billion tons of cargo, and the future is looking even brighter.
5:56 am
the canal zone who was ceded back to panama in 1999 was in the midst of an eight-year makeover. it will include a new locking system that can accommodate today's super tankers and mega container ships. it should ensure the canal's success for at least another 100 years. >> i think people forget about that little canal, but still about 5% of trade passes through that little -- i shouldn't call it little -- that big pass. >> and still changing. as you heard. up next the art, evolution and big business of the cowboy boot. >> reporter: i'm brandon scott at a cowboy boot factory in el paso texas. more than 1500 boots are made here etch day, and it's ground zero for a modern-day boot bonanza. that story's coming up on "cbs this morning saturday."

5:58 am
and they are kind of living in i aworld that looks like they're in a movie. like they're in some kind of stoner comedy. as the movie goes on you start realizing, wait a minute owens's character has a substance abuse problem and zach's character is mentally ill. to me it's like a complicated issue of like what is the solution to that? it's just a compromise, you know. >> as jane said this is so apropos because we're talking about robin williams' death. and jane and i were talking about earlier because in the paper today, the rate of suicide among men, middle-aged men, is up 40%. that's that state of alienation that you deal with in some ways in this movie. >> i feel like, you know, you can't control it. and then the idea is that owens' character has to stop taking drugs, and zach's character has to start taking medication. and i kind of was, like that is the compromise of life you know, who even knows if you can ever get out of that. and that's kind of what i was interested in.

6:05 am
are in the best location that they can be not compromising any safety whatsoever. >> reporter: the natural gas is in deposits deep beneath the runways and terminals. so to reach it crews will have to drill horizontally. at a recent meeting, energy executives laid out their plan. >> i can assure you that we have been working diligently and collaboratively to develop a drilling plan that we believe will enable us to develop the oil and natural gas at the airport efficiently while minimizing environmental and airport operational impacts. >> reporter: in its heyday pittsburgh international was a bustling hub for us airways that serviced 21 million passengers in a single year. but after usair pulled up stakes and merged with american airlines, passenger traffic plummeted to a low of just 8 million people in 2013. now the airport is drowning in debt, spending 42% of its roughly $91 million operating budget just on loan payments.
6:06 am
royalties from the natural gas are worth an estimated $20 million a year. a hefty paycheck that could help change the airport's financial course. nationwide, other airports are already tapping into underground profits. each year in texas, drilling at dfw brings in $8 million. and in colorado denver international earns roughly $6 million from oil and gas. in pittsburgh the faa required an environmental assessment before fracking could begin and found no significant impact clearing the way for drilling and profits. for "cbs this morning saturday," i'm teri okita. >> joining us with more on the use of fracking to save an airport is brian walsh, senior editor of "time" magazine. brian, good morning. >> good to be here. >> so pittsburgh passed this with minimal opposition whatbut what are the concerns? >> well with fracking there's concerns about could there be contamination for the underground water that fracking has to go through. there's worries about spills on
6:07 am
the surface, any kind of sort of activity like that. there's worries about air pollution from the actual process. and a big issue is really industrializing off in sort of very rural areas. you'll have trucks a lot of equipment moving in, and that can be very disruptive. >> they say this land offers ideal conditions for fracking. what does that mean? >> it means it's sitting on top of multiple shale layers a lot of gas sitting right there basically. you can just reach it with one well pad as opposed to having to build lots and lots of pads which you see in other areas like texas. and a big part of it it's owned by one person. so gas companies don't have to go to hundreds and possibly thousands of landlords to actually get the gas. >> you mentioned texas. there we had seen some concerns about seismic activity as a result of this drilling and the horizontal drilling. is that a possibility for pittsburgh also that they should be aware of? >> well, with the concerns about seismic activity it's less the actual fracking and drilling than what are known as disposal wells. when you drill and frac you
6:08 am
produce a lot of leftover water, leftover fluid, really, has to go somewhere. and in many parts of the country like texas, they put them in these wells. and you create a lot of pressure when you're packing in millions and millions of gallons of water. so that can become an issue with seismic activity if it intersects with a fault. in pennsylvania that's less the case. we don't have a lot of disposal wells there. so you have an additional problem, of course which is where is that wastewater going to go. so quakes aren't a problem, but you still have an issue with what to do with this actual fluid. >> serious drought concerns in parts of the country. an enormous amount of water is used. is that a concern at all? >> i think it is. if you're looking at texas or california where they're considering fracking for oil, those are parts of the country that are very water stressed. any additional use for water is going to be a concern. for pennsylvania perhaps less so. that's really so much of the drought conditions but, you know, as this scales up, which it is around the country, water use and water scarcitye ityity will be a bigger issue. >> we've seen denver and dallas
6:09 am
do this and they've raised a good amount of money. were there any problems they had that pittsburgh should be aware of? >> well dallas-ft. worth has had issues with seismic activity. they so desperate for it. >> and they're going to get a lot of money. >> exactly. they're going to become an airport that has a side business in flying that mostly is a fracking area. >> thanks, brian. at the little league world series in williamsport pennsylvania a 13-year-old girl from philadelphia is making history. pitcher davis of the dragons dominated nashville with eight strikeouts and only gave up two hits. she's only the fifth girl to make it to the little league world series and the only girl to throw a shutout at williamsport. but davis says it's not just about her. >> the whole team got us here today. so it shouldn't just be about

for people who haven't read the book it's about a society with no conflict no wars no sadness and also no love and no emotion. katie, what did you think when you first got the script? >> i really loved the script and then i read the book. and i, you know immediately understood why it's so beloved. and i think these themes are very important. and what i love about the movie is you see this extreme society. >> it's perfect in many ways because there's no conflict. >> no war, no pain. but then you see jonas go through having all of these memories and these beautiful human moments. and it's wonderful to see on screen these wonderful life moments. and to me, the movie is very emotional when you see it.
6:28 am
you know it's a celebration of life in many ways because you're seeing what happens when you take away freedom. >> a lot of powerful ideas here too, harvey. >> you know katie and alexander are both getting really strong reviews. and they mirror meryl streep and jeff bridges. and i really went to meryl, and i have to tell you her daughters closed the deal. because like my daughters, closed my deal. three of my daughters had read "the giver." they said, dad you've got to make the movie. i call meryl right away. i said, have your girls read the book? she called me back and said they love it. climate control has caused us pain. overpopulation caused us pain. she goes through all the reasons why society was perfect and why there's no pain now. and then jeff bridges debates her in his part. and just to see these two great actors be on the opposite meryl actually makes you believe that totalitarianism had a reason, and that's the strength of the book.
